Noordeinde Paleis or Noordeinde (translation: North End) Palace – The King’s place of work!
It is located in Noordeinde neighborhood within the center of The Hague surrounded by art galleries, renowned antique purveyors, prized winning cafes, one of a kind boutiques and international luxury brands.
This grand building started out as a medieval farmhouse and was later converted into a spacious residence in 1533. Throughout the years, Noordeinde Palace was used as a winter home by the Royal Family.
Following a thorough restoration in 1984, the Palace became the Dutch Monarch’s workplace and the main venue for hosting official state visits and banquets.
The complex includes a Royal Stable, a Palace Garden and a Royal Archives.
